First shot at cooking tuna I took tips from friends on the forum and some ingredients from the internet and created a marinade that seemed to work just fine. The key is to buy high end product and to not overcook the tuna, period, end of discussion.

Ingredients for Marinade
•1/4 c. olive oil
•2 tbsp. lime juice
•1 tbsp. dry mustard
•2 tbsp. dried cilantro
•1 tbsp. chili powder
•1 tsp. black pepper
•1 tbsp. mustard seeds
•4 to 6 tuna steaks

Mix ingredients and brush onto tuna steak. Refrigerate for several hours. For ¾” steaks, sear on each side for 1 minute and remove from grill. You have a few options on how you want to present thicker steaks and cooking them until they flake (like many websites tout) will result in dry tuna; period.

    good looking cook. i like lime in the marinade with tuna, it partially cooks the exterior which brings a different texture to the party, you can get crust, a soft moist white area just under the surface, then the red tuna

  • Tuna's one of those you have to watch. Doesn't take long to cook and a good rare inside is what you want. I can't find the recipe but I think it was alton brown that used sesame seeds all around. About 90 sec a side.
